The Meghalaya government on Monday announced that it would set up wholesale markets for locally grown agriculture products. It also urged local vegetable traders not to import vegetables from outside the State.

“We have decided to establish wholesale markets for selling vegetables and other items within Shillong Agglomeration and outside to help people sell and buy,” Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong told reporters.
Tynsong urged local vegetable traders not to encourage bringing vegetables from outside especially when inter-state movement has been sealed.
“We have already said that inter-state movement has been sealed. If vegetables are still coming from outside, it is also the responsibility of all our local traders not to encourage bringing vegetables from outside especially now we are in the season where production of vegetables has started,” Tynsong said.
Carcass of tigress found in Kaziranga
Guwahati, May 11 (Agencies): Authorities in Assam’s Kaziranga National Park found the carcass of a female Royal Bengal Tiger inside the park.
P Siva Kumar, the park’s director, confirmed the death and said the cause of death of the tigress was likely due to infighting. The carcass, with its skin intact, was found in the Bagori range of the park.
Forest officials and veterinarians conducted the post-mortem examination of the tigress, which had died six to seven days ago, in the afternoon.
This is the second tiger death reported in the park this year.
Last month, the carcass of an adult tiger was found near Mihibeel in the Kohora range of the park. Old age and infighting was the cause of death.
On Saturday, forest officials had found the carcass of an adult male rhino in Agaratoli range of the park with its horn missing.
